Oregon State University Libraries
Corvallis, Oregon
Closing date: March 23, 2006. 
 
The OSU Archives seeks an archivist with skills and interest in
providing innovative reference services to users, enhanced online
description of archival collections through Encoded Archival
Description, and delivery of archival materials through the OSU
Libraries digital collections.  The Staff Archivist will participate in
all aspects of the Archives program with primary responsibility for the
Archives reference and public service activities and supervision of
student assistants.
 
The Oregon State University Archives, established in 1961, is a
department of the University Libraries. The University Archives
collects, describes, makes accessible to the public, and exhibits
permanent records created or received by OSU departments and offices and
records of private origin that complement those of the university.   The
staff includes 6 archivists (5.4 FTE) and 4-6 student assistants (~2.5
FTE).
 
The OSU Libraries has been the lead institution for the Northwest
Digital Archives since its establishment in 2002 and EAD finding aids of
OSU Archives' collections are currently provided through the NWDA
finding aids database.  Archival materials (primarily photographs) are
well represented in the OSU Libraries digital collections.
 
The Oregon Multicultural Archives was established in 2005 and will
comprehensively acquire, preserve and make available collections that
document the lives and activities of African American, Asian American,
Latino and Native American communities of Oregon. The diverse
collections will reflect how these communities have contributed to the
identity of the state of Oregon.
